Two recent sessions with Mike in the Shercock area, on the 4th August a visit to Namacree for some roach fishing, single feeder rod, it produced good fishing and I ended with a 5.5Lbs bag of roach of various sizes. Few pictures:
On the 9th we headed once again for Shercock and this time we picked a lake which could produce Bream. Fishing was very good with again a single feeder rod and any bait produced good size roach and a few Bream. The weather was good at first but got extremely heavy with rain, thunder & lightning at times. Finished with 10.5Lbs. Few pictures:
Another great tench session with Mike from 7am to 1pm, over 50Lbs between us, great sunshine too!
Both fished one centerpin rod, Mike using pellets, me on 10mm Berkley boilies ; We missed a lot of fish with hook pulls as the lilies and weed was thick.
my swim, Mike fish:
15 tench for me, best ever in one session!
Last minute decision with the weather looking very bad, headed to a small Carrick Lake this morning with Mike. At the lake around 6.30am and was fishing just after 7am; Decided on just one float rod, my newly acquired Maver Abyss X Series 12ft float rod with the trusted Marco Cortesi Centerpin, bait changed during the session but mainly fruity 10mm boilies/ worms on a Guru QM1 size 14, all this right on the bottom (about 7ft).
Rain did show up too, as expected! First it was a very short shower but from 12pm we had serious downpour, no regrets having to carry the brolly
Ended up at 1.30pm with 8 Tench, lost a fair few too due to hook pulls – This made for a cracking session with fizz and bites almost constant; Mike swim was somewhat quieter but got him 3 nice Tench also!
